Dancing With the Stars
Dancing with the Stars returns for its 17th season Monday, after going through an overhaul this summer. In an attempt to curb the show's steadily declining ratings,Dancing has made a number of changes for the new season, including returning to a single-night format.
"Obviously it's always very challenging in ratings terms when shows mature," executive producer Conrad Green tells TVGuide.com. "I think the key is, you do need to keep innovating. You do need to keep trying new things."
Kym Johnson will not be coming back to Dancing with the Stars for Season 17, Us Weekly reports.

Alexandra Raisman and Mark Ballas
It was a big Dancing with the Stars week for Aly Raisman. Not only did she make the final four, but she finally received her first perfect 30 of the season for her rumba. "It was amazing. I almost couldn't believe it," she tells TVGuide.com. "But I was more excited for Jacoby [Jones] and Karina [Smirnoff] when they got their 30l. So, I almost forgot that I got one too." Why was she so excited for him? And what do she and Mark Ballas have planned for the final? (Hint: It won't involve the Fierce Five.)
The only thing more explosive than Kellie Pickler's paso doble with pros Derek Hough and Tristan MacManus on Dancing With the Stars Monday night was the ballroom reaction to the score it received from head judge Len Goodman: A measly 7. "Just ridiculous!," cried judge Bruno Tonioli who, along with judge Carrie Ann Inaba, gave the dance a perfect 10.

Will it be two times the fun on the 16th season of ABC's Dancing With the Stars, which begins March 18? Producers are trying to make up for the lackluster ratings of last season's All Stars by spiking the cast (announced Feb. 26 on Good Morning America) with a double dose of Olympians, country stars and comedians.
The big names include ice-skating legend Dorothy Hamill, 56; singer Wynonna Judd, 48; and...

Joey Fatone, Kym Johnson
Joey Fatone just has one request for Week 2 of Dancing with the Stars: "Don't make me go first!"
The Season 4 alum kicked off the All-Stars season with Kym Johnson last week and does not want to be the opening act again. "I better not!" he tells TVGuide.com. "When they told me I was first, I was like, 'Oh, crap!' Then everyone says it's an honor. It's not an honor! People might forget about you and you might get voted off first. It was cool to kick off the show, but there was a lot of pressure."
The 'N Sync star is feeling good about his next dance, the quickstep, though. See what else he has to say about coming back, who he thought he might be paired with and how he's targeting Drew Lachey.

They're not newcomers — the 13 Dancing With The Stars: All-Stars contestants have been to this rodeo before. You wouldn't expect them to be all that nervous, but on Monday's season premiere, they were.
So nervous that Joey Fatone says he panicked a little when he found out that he and partner Kym Johnson would be dancing first. "It was so nerve-wracking," says Fatone. "When you're first out of the gate, there's a level of expectation. And you hope that you meet that expectation, but literally, today, I was thinking, 'What did I get myself into again?'"
They're back! Dancing with the Stars' long-awaited All-Stars is finally here. So how did these lucky 13 returnees do?
